NB: We do not rehome interstate or to applicants under 25. It is our policy not to rehome dogs in the Sunraysia area. As rescue groups have transported thousands of homeless dogs from Mildura and Sunraysia pounds over the last decade, we do not intend to send any back there.

Check out these gorgeous videos of Maple:

Maple is the gentlest of girls. She is very happy to chill on the couch, nice soft doggy bed or right by your feet as you work or watch tv. She is also a beautiful shadow who will happily follow you around the house and garden. She is a big and we mean a BIG fan of belly rubs and chin scratches. If you stop or are near her and she’s in the mood for some affection she’ll sweetly lift her paw to touch you as a subtle hint. Food is another favourite of hers. She eats up all her dinner and sits so nicely for you to put her bowl down of before any treat.

Like so many other rescues she has had some rough experiences in life which has given her some anxiety. She is quite wary of men, sudden movements and loud voices. Maple is on medication for her anxiety and has come very far. Maple’s foster carers proudly report on Maple’s progress. Her confidence and curiosity are very evident around the home and her surroundings. She now does a happy dance when it’s her dinner time or when the carers get home.

Maple walks well on a lead. The start of a walk can be a challenge for Maple with a lot of movement around. When scared she’ll stop in her tracks and keep watch on whatever it is that has her worried. Her foster carer has been working with her on walks and all it takes is some calm patience, staying close to her so she knows she’s supported, and once she’s ready to walk again we’re off! Maple’s progress is evident on her walks with her improved confidence. Maple isn’t keen on little and/or yappy dogs and though a gentle girl has been known to headbutt a dog to communicate ‘please get out of my face’. Maple does tend to want to chase smaller dogs and we feel she’d be the same with cats. Therefore we’re seeking a household without them.

Maple is house trained. She is  sweet, affectionate and an obedient companion – and she travels well in the car.

Looking for some delightful companionship? We see Maple in a chilled out home with no cats. Is that your home? Lets get started on the application!

Adults/teenage home only.

Medical Notes:  Maple is now on medication and she is starting to become more active and involved in what is going on. She is a little wobbly in the back legs, and only just tolerates the three steps at her current foster care home. She is on 4cyte.

All our dogs are desexed, C5 vaccinated with intranasal, microchipped, wormed, and flea treated. All necessary vetwork such as dentals, surgery, eye treatment are also carried out. We are no longer heartworm testing as we have not had one positive test since we began in 2006. If a dog comes to us on heartworm treatment this is continued.
